SemSoc2007 - Artificial Intelligence and Social Semantic Collaboration



Special Track at the 20th International FLAIRS Conference (FLAIRS 2007),

          In cooperation with The American Association for Artificial
Intelligence (AAAI)

Casa Marina Resort and Beach Club

Key West, Florida

   May 7-9 2007 






The Semantic Web holds promises for information organization and selective
access, providing standard means for formulating and distributing metadata
and Ontologies. However, we miss a wide use of Semantic Web technologies on
personal computers. The use of ontologies, metadata annotations, and
semantic web protocols on desktop computers will allow the integration of
desktop applications and the web, enabling a much more focused and
integrated personal information management as well as focused information
distribution and collaboration on the Web beyond sending emails. The goal is
an open personal information management system and collaborative
infrastructure based on Semantic Web technology build into the operating
system of current machines. 


Collaboration, acquisition and dissemination infrastructures like Wikis and
Blogs are providing the foundation for joint collaborative knowledge
creation and are essentially simplified knowledge acquisition tools. Social
Software maps the social connections between different people into the
technical infrastructure. Online Social Networking enables collaboration
relationships as first class citizens, and allows exploiting these
relationships for automated information distribution and classification. 


P2P and Grid computing develops technology to interconnect large communities
without centralized infrastructures for data and computation sharing, which
is necessary to build heterogeneous, multi-organizational collaboration
networks. The application of the mentioned technologies, especially in
combination with the Semantic Web, to the desktop computer in order to
improve personal information management and collaboration is the main topic
of this special track. 




Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


* Architectures and frameworks for integrating the Semantic Web into a
Desktop environment 

* Personal Information Management tools (calendar, address books, email,
documents, ideas) that interoperate with the Semantic Web 

* Cognitive Agent that Learns and Organizes 

* Social Bookmarking, Tagging and Annotation 

* Enhance searching and information retrieval on desktop computers using
ontologies and metadata. 

* Means to extract metadata from desktop applications (e.g., OpenOffice

* Knowledge Acquisition and Visualization tools for desktop applications 

* Integration and exploitation of semantic social networks into a semantic
desktop environment 

* P2P models for distributed architecture enabling collaboration with
Semantic Desktop nodes 

* Applications of the Semantic Desktop, e.g, eScience and eGovernment. 

* Methods employing the community factor for knowledge engineering, 

* Policies, authentication and trust within agile collaborative knowledge
engineering scenarios, 

* Querying, aggregation and presentation for adaptive scenarios 

* Joining Web 2.0 and Semantic Web strategies and technologies 

* Applications enabling massively distributed knowledge elicitation
